Just returned from yet another wonderful trip in Zihua. Here are some great new places we discovered to eat and enjoy! These are all within 1/2 block from pier.
*Los Briseros - 150 different, delicious Mexican menu items and inexpensive
*Rick's Bar - traditional American fare including a great burger and homemade potato salad - awesome breakfasts, great ambience, gracious host.
*Don Memo's - Italian food - if you're craving pasta this is the place! Inexpensive
*Canta Mar - excellent for lunch
*Pizza Nervona - awesome spinach/artichoke pizza
*La Casa Cafe - run by Lorna & Pedro - best coffee in Zihua and excellent breakfasts! (near Brisas del Mar hotel)
*El Buen Gusto - bakery with awesome fresh pastries, muffins
You can't go to Ixtapa without going to the German Bakery & Restaurant (aka Golden Cookie Shop) in Los Patios 2nd floor. Find this place. It's awesome! Try the house specialty of banana nut pankcakes and fresh orange juice. You also meet some great people at the breakfast table.
Enjoy your stay in Zihua - I'll definitely back to "Another Day in Paradise"
